Purpose Statement

The Center for Student Involvement (CSI) is committed to the mission of Barry University and the Division of Student Affairs. The guiding philosophy of CSI recognizes that the development of the whole student is achieved through in-class and out-of-class learning opportunities and experiences provided through programs designed to enhance cultural, intellectual, leadership, personal, and professional development. When afforded these opportunities for learning and growing, students will graduate from the institution with a better understanding of themselves and their peers, as it relates to their organizations, chosen professions and responsibilities as part of a larger community.

CSI encompasses New Student Orientation, Leadership Development, Student Programs and Events, Student Clubs and Organizations, Fraternity and Sorority Life, and Commuter Student Resources.

The staff, through the implementation of student development theories in a variety of instructional settings, assists students in developing environments which enhance diversity, promote ethical and moral development, encourage civic engagement, promote the establishment of meaningful interpersonal relationships, and provide leadership and experiential learning opportunities.
